Crust is a new restaurant in the place formerly occupied by the short-lived News Cafe branch in the strip mall on the SE corner of Hayden Rd and Indian Bend Rd in Scottsdale, next to Sakana.

I got a Margherita to go, tonight. The rectangular pizza ($15.50) comes in a 14" x 18" box, which it nearly fills. Crust is an appropriate name, the pizza seemed to be made on a thick, pre-baked crust. It was topped with a generous amount of red sauce, and eight, carefully placed, slices of cheese, with a smattering of very small basil leaves.

It was pretty good, but, not really for me. I'm too old to eat this much bread.

For those who like thick crust pizza, it might be worth checking out. There's lots of other things on the menu. Looking at the menu, I'm afraid that it might be like the Wildflower Bakery, where, they're just a bit too proud of their bread, and insist on serving it with everything.

It was worth a shot, but, I'll be driving the extra mile and getting my next take-out pizza from The Cove Trattoria.
